About Me

From a very early age, I was fascinated with science, particularly the workings of the brain. This prompted me to pursue a degree in neuroscience, and I realized that neurosurgery would give me the opportunity to combine my interest in the brain with the ability to help people.

I specialize in treating patients with benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spine, including meningiomas, gliomas, metastatic tumors, and other types of tumors. I am skilled in the latest minimally invasive techniques to provide the best care for patients.

When patients come to me, I collaborate with specialists in neuro-oncology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology to develop a comprehensive, coordinated treatment plan. I utilize all resources of an integrated team approach to treat the whole person and improve outcomes.

I encourage my patients to participate in clinical trials, which offer access to innovative therapies and advance the efficacy of treatment for people with brain tumors.
